>> alisyn: we use our finger to show them. >> brian: or if you have to run from the tv, run to the radio. among people on our show, alisyn camerota. >> alisyn: what? i'm going to tune in. bill: here we go with a fox news alert. air raid sirens wailing, rockets heading towards jerusalem. hillary clinton is on her way to the region to try to mediate an end to the fighting. there are more developments that have a direct impact on all of this. martha: time is running out for any quick peaceful resolution to all of this. israel saying it will hold on a ground invasion for 48 hours to see if an egyptian-brokered peace could take hold. in the meantime the bombs are still falling. israel is stepping up their assaults on key hamas targets. bill: lelan vittert joins us on the gaza border. there was talk of a cease-fire. where are we on that? >> reporter: israeli radio which has a reliable track record is quoting officials saying there will be a an aments early as tonight. from egypt they are saying israeli aggression will cease. israeli air strikes continue to pound away at the gaza s
, they were stunned. we will go to a hotel for a few days until they find us an alternative home she says. their 9-year-old daughter said she was frightened when she heard the initial siren and then the large explosion. an israeli member of parliament who came to the house minced no words in what he thought israel had to do. >> they are ready to go further. >> there's a major debate in israel on whether that's wise. a former commander and mayor of beer sheva says iz ray leer air power can get it done alone. while we were in the city 11 hamas rockets entered the city. some interintercepted by the iron dome system. others got through and caused casualties. we were allow today go inside the emergency medical command center. sirens alert them and they brace for the onslaught of calls. we're inside an israeli ambulance. we've just left the command center heading towards an area where rockets just landed and currently there are injured and maybe even worse. we'll see what's going on. sharon howard is the liaison officer helping to coordinate medical care. >> many casualties, also medical units
that israel and the u.s. consider a terrorist organization. regular life in gaza city is pretty much ground to a halt. stores are closed and shuttered. streets which would normally be filled with people are largely empty. most people just try to stay indoors as much as they can, only venturing out when they absolutely need to in order to buy supplies for their families. otherwise, it's just too dangerous to go out. these days, for israelis along the border and residents of gaza city, there is no such thing as regular life. as the battle enters its seventh day, casualties, rage and grief grow on both sides of the border along with the fear that the worst may be yet to come. i'm joined by wolf blitzer in jerusalem, also here with ben wedeman and arwa damon. arwa, yesterday you were at the scene of what was the most controversial attack, a strike on what israeli forces said was a building owned by a hamas official, commander of an artillery unit. they say initially he had been killed, then stepped back from that. at least nine members of a family were killed. what was the scene like? >> it was
cnn by phone today how his organization is looking to see what the u.s. does. >> i think the egyptians are waiting for some support from the united states in order to make an -- we expect to have an outcome of this today. >> you have so many moving parts in all of this. there is a discrepancy, hamas saying this was a cease-fire, but israel is call iing it a ca down period. and here is israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, moments before word came. >> no country would tolerate rocket attacks against its cities and against its civilians. israel cannot tolerate such attacks. if a long-term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means, then israel would be a willing partner to such a solution. but if stronger military action proves necessary to stop the constant gara constant barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people. >> the most surprising thing for the palestinians is always talking about the israeli needs, about israeli security, about israel -- without talking about the palestinian needs, about the palestinian security, ab
important instrument for us, and we'll be using that at some point, at the appropriate time, to begin to tighten monetary policy. now, you're talking about the other direction, why not just cut it to zero, pay no interest on excess reserves, and thereby, get more accommodation? well, it's something we've considered repeatedly, and we continue to consider, and i don't rule it out as an action in the futtre, what we do is the following. if we were to cut the interest rate from 25 basis points to 0 #, our estimate is it affects short term interest rates, like overnight rates, on the order of eight or nine basis points, extremely small amount, in turn, having a smaller effect on loans like housing loans or auto loans ect.. the stimulated agent -- act of that action is small, but on the other hand, the concerns we've had or some have had is that if there is no return on institutions, money market funds, repo markets and so on could be liquid because there's little incentive to act in the markets when interests pay zero, why not just hold cash or fallow reserves? so the concern is that, per
opportunity in the united states of america. thanks for joining us. "ac 360" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. we're coming to you tonight live from gaza city, where today, we have seen continued violence in what was day six of this conflict. we begin tonight with breaking news at this hour. new explosions rocking the city of gaza. just moments ago off in the distance, what sounded like rolling thunder, the sound of explosions somewhere in gaza, not in the actual area that we can see so it must be on the other side of the building where we are right now. earlier also in the past hour, we saw a number of rockets being fired from gaza city toward israel and we saw israel's iron dome air defense system actually take out some of those rockets in midair. so it doesn't seem like they actually reached across the border into israel and actually land in israel. we've seen explosions really over the last several hours, though not as active as we saw last night, but it was a very busy day here in gaza, a day -- deadly day as well. take a look.
